Carolyn Robinson has created two significant gardens at her homes, Glenrock and Eagle’s Bluff, near Tenterfield in Northern NSW, since 1992. She has designed around 30 other gardens in the area and advised many more gardeners through her nursery.

In this interview she describes how she developed her distinctive design style through experience and experimentation in a challenging climate. She outlines her favourite plant palettes and recalls her most significant garden projects

Carolyn’s first garden, Glenrock, was voted Australia’s favourite garden in Better Homes and Gardens 2006 television competition and her designs have been  included in the NSW State Library Planting Dreams: Shaping Australian Gardens  exhibition (2016) and Claire Takacs’ Australian Dreamscapes (2018).
